​Dr Magda Robinson, MD​

Dr Robinson is a UK-trained medical doctor, specialising in weight loss. She is GMC-registered, and is a member of the World Obesity Federation and the Association for the Study of Obesity.

Magda has written extensively on the topics of weight loss and nutrition, in particular on the topic of low-carb diets. Her book ‘Eat Carbohydrates: Get Thin and Healthy’ explains how eating bread can help with weight loss.

She has treated many patients with great success, using personalised plant-based eating plans and expert tailored advice: the best tips to lose weight fast and keep the weight off, without feeling hungry. She provides all the tools needed to start the weight-loss journey and to maintain weight loss. Her unique approach also has benefits such as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and preventing constipation.

She is available for in-clinic or remote consultations via phone or Zoom. In-clinic appointments include a full body-composition analysis to determine fat, muscle, visceral fat and metabolic age.

Magda’s interest in nutrition began when she became a vegetarian at the age of 11, and it continued at medical school, when she tried many different weight-loss diets. It took years to finally discover a long-lasting solution to over-eating and weight gain. She turned fully vegan in 2019, which has helped her maintain a healthy weight.

She supports numerous animal charities and is passionate about both nutrition and animal welfare.

Gemma Davies, BA, MA (Dist), MBACP, Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition

Integrative Psychotherapist, Psychotherapy Plus

(Harley St, Kew Gardens and Online)

Gemma takes the ‘integrative’ aspect of psychotherapy to its limit.  In her early thirties, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and had, what you might call, a depressive disposition.  Her personal experience of permanently reversing both conditions through nutrition fuelled her passion and deep understanding of how an optimal diet contributes to both physical and psychological health.

She therefore combines her more traditional counselling approaches (CBT, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and beyond) with a formal training in evidence-based nutrition. Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy sessions are also available for a range of presenting issues including facilitating the transition to a plant-based way of eating.

Therapy takes place one to one or in couples via various online mediums; socially distanced walk and talk (Richmond Riverside); or, as a four-hour invigorating kick-start in beautiful Kew Gardens.

A complimentary, remote consultation allows potential clients to explore how her blended therapeutic practice could support them in their recovery.

Lorena Casanova

Psychologist, fitness specialist

I am a psychologist working as a lifestyle counselor. I am also qualified and experienced in high performance sports as well as personal training, and certified in plant based nutrition. My current work is the product of what has to be the most valuable lesson that my professional experience has given me: Context is crucial.

In order to reach my full potential in helping others, I had to acknowledge that mental health, exercise, nutrition and relationship with food, sleep, self-image, self-esteem and confidence, identity, professional life, interpersonal relationships… simply don’t work in a vacuum. So, why would I?

My scholar self is on a research journey on cognitive processes. My professional self is devoted to improving people’s quality of life through an integrated approach. Our contextual, psychological and physical circumstances perpetually influence one another. A skilled analysis of the whole picture has proven to lead to quicker and, most importantly, longer-lasting results.

My approach is always evidence-based and superstition-free.

UK based – works remotely (online).

Hi! I’m Jenny, a plant-based Registered UK-based Nutritional Therapist and Director of Nutrition Uncut with a specialist interest in Plant-Based Nutrition. I’m on a mission to help my clients live a longer life, in better health, and in better shape; by eating more plant foods!

I generally work with my clients on a 1:2:1 basis and my signature programme is a 6-month coaching style transformation programme to help my clients make meaningful dietary and lifestyle changes designed to:

  • establish and address the root cause of health conditions
  • drop body fat, improve body composition and metabolic health
  • transform health and improve wellness

I LOVE to work with strong, determined, ambitious women (even if they have lost their way a little) who want more from life and who are ready, willing, and able to take action!

LIFT stronger, LAUGH louder, LOVE nutrition.

Rachel Huban Dip Nutritional Therapy

I’m a plant-based nutritionist, specializing in Crohn’s disease.

I’ve lived with this condition for over 20 years and I made huge improvements to my life by going plant-based, changing my lifestyle, and getting support with emotional well-being.

I don’t believe the outdated theory that the body is attacking itself. If anything, the body is signalling for help. There is SO much we can do to improve our lives while living with Crohn’s, regardless if you’re on or off medications.

I teach a holistic approach to my clients.

Melanie Jopling BSc(Hons), PGDip

Based in Ackworth, Yorkshire

I am a registered Nutritional Therapist (CNHC) and Nutritionist (MBANT).

As an online Nutritional Therapist, I work with clients throughout the country to support them with an array of health concerns ranging from perimenopause and hormonal health to anxiety, auto-immune conditions, gut symptoms and more.

I follow a whole-foods plant-based (WFPB) diet to support my own health. If you are looking to move towards a plant-based diet but are not sure where to start or what you need to include, I can support your journey.

We all have different genetic make-up, react differently to the foods we eat, and make different lifestyle choices: there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Nutritional therapy takes account of the connections between all our body systems, from our hormones to our digestion and immune responses. It is about supporting the correction of the imbalances causing ill-health, rather than simply managing symptoms. Fully qualified in personalised evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine, I believe in giving you the tools you need, empowering you to make positive and lasting changes to your health.
